After much controversy, Epic Games released the fourth chapter of the first season of Fortnite. While this is not a new development for the title, the developer has partnered with popular YouTuber Mr. Beast to release a player skin that can be unlocked from the in-game store. In addition to Mr. Beast’s skin, new challenges are also available.
It is well known that Mr. Beast is known for his high-stakes challenge ideas. In the past, he has donated millions of dollars to Epic Games. With this in mind, Epic Games and Mr. Beast have teamed up to schedule a challenge allowing players to win US$1,000,000. This article provides more details on this event.
Epic Games Announces “Fortnite” Survival Challenge and Mr. Beast Skin
On Monday, Epic Games announced on its blog that Season 1 Fortnite Chapter 4 would receive a major skin update. Fortnite is known for its realistic skin designs, and this time it will be the skin of Mr. Beast, a popular YouTuber with over 118 million subscribers. Mr. Beast is known for his expensive and challenging videos. Mr. Beast’s skin can be purchased from the in-game store, but the price has not yet been announced.
Contrary to expectations, players will likely need to spend about 2,000 V-Bucks (in-game currency) to obtain the Mr. Beast skin. Additionally, a Survival Challenge is scheduled for Saturday at 12 p.m. ET. The Challenge will run from 12 p.m. ET to 3 p.m. PT on December 17. Players can participate in this Challenge in the “Fortnite Vs. Row” under the “Discover” tab. Participants may play as many matches as they wish during the Challenge.
In addition, the scores earned in each match will be tallied, and the total score of the Challenge will be announced. The player with the highest score will receive US$1 million. The top 100 players will also receive a golden Beast Brera umbrella. The Survival Challenge island is already open to the public, and players can practice until the Challenge begins on December 17.
Verifying 2FA in your Epic account
The developers have provided clear guidelines for players to participate in the Survival Challenge. These guidelines include activating and verifying 2FA in your Epic account. This ensures that your Challenge score counts and that you are at least account level 15. For more information, see the Official Guidelines.
In addition to the Survival Challenge Island, the Mr. Beast Quest will also be held on the same day. Players who complete this quest will be rewarded with the Mr. Beast Gaming Spray, while the other quest will reward them with the Mr. Beast Survival Games Loading Screen. However, these two quests will not be available until January 4, 2023, at 6:59 p.m. (CST).
To get the full Mr. Beast skin, you must obtain the Mr. Beast Outfit (aka MrBeast6000) plus several matching accessories. These accessories include the Mr. Beast Smasher Pickaxe, Beast Backdrop Wrap, Prize Package Back Bling, Beast Claw Pickaxe, and Wrapped & Revved Glider. In addition, a “BEAST BLASTIN’ EMOTE” will be available that allows users to fire cash from their blasters.
In summary, the new MrBeast6000 Outfit and its accompanying survival challenges and quests are all new additions to the game. All major details are covered in this article, so players should look forward to Saturday (December 17) and be prepared to participate in the challenges and quests.
